Anjali to prioritize scripts than hero

Anjali to prioritize scripts than hero
Anjali is going great guns. After narrowly missing out on winning the coveted national award for 'best actress' for her mind-blowing performance in Vasanthabalan's Angaadi Theru a couple of years ago, Anjali touched the audiences' emotional chords last year with her neat portrayal of a love-struck yet determined girl in debutante director Saravanan's Engeyum Eppodhum.

She continues to shift from playing lead roles in films to essaying important characters in films having big stars. After playing one of the four heroines in Ajith's Mankatha last year, she played one of the two heroines along with Oviya Helen in Kalakalappu and proved that she could excel in glamour-filled roles too with equal ease. Fortunately, despite her talent, she doesn't throw tantrums saying she'd take up films only opposite leading heroes. A very sensitive and sensible actress, one of Anjali's many strengths is her ability to dub for her role in all her films. Despite carving out a niche for herself in the viewers' mind, Anjali continues to take on roles of varied dimensions. With a strong head on her slender shoulders, the Rajahmundry-born Anjali takes a deep look at the role offered to her and decides to take up a film offer only for it script and not for the 'stars' in it.

She doesn't think twice in agreeing to perform 'item numbers' in Vishal's upcoming film Samar as well as Suriya's upcoming sequel film Singam-2. "Even dancing, albeit for an 'item number', is a kind of acting. As far as my idea is concerned, one shouldn't shudder from taking on all sorts of roles. Whatever is offered to me, I shall try my best and would leave the rest to the fans and the Almighty," concludes Anjali.

She plays one of the two heroines opposite Aarya in R. Kannan's Settai, which is the Tamil remake of the Bollywood super-hit film Delhi Belly. In which she has also featured in a hot 'lip-lock' with Aarya!
